Georgetown announces largest gift in history

Georgetown University today announced the largest donation in its history, valued at $87 million, to support medical research.

From the release:

"The gift originated in a $1.2 million charitable trust established by the will of the late Harry J. Toulmin in 1965. His widow, businesswoman and philanthropist Virginia Toulmin of Dayton, Ohio, and Sarasota, Fla., managed the trust for the following 45 years and grew it to its current value. A longtime Georgetown volunteer leader, she died on June 13 at age 84."
